When I came across the bottom of an old Hoosier cabinet by the dumpster one day, I just had to stop and pick it up! At the time, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but eventually decided it would make a great outdoor kitchen island! I reattached the porcelain top and painted it using Annie Sloan's Primer Red. I added hooks for grilling tools and a hand towel. The cabinet is now a great place to store charcoal, lighter fluid and grilling tools. Plus, it really adds more to our patio, which happens to be one of our favorite places to be! #OutdoorEntertaining
  • The finished Hoosier cabinet turned outdoor kitchen island
  • What our Hoosier cabinet looked like before. The drawers were falling apart and it had SEVERAL coats of paint on it!
  • Added a wooden top, but later decided to reattach the porcelain top.
  • I added hooks to the side for hand towels and grilling tools.
  • Above the cabinet, is a fun place to add recipes and grilling ideas!

    i was just "gifted" a hoosier-styled cabinet this very afternoon (it's still sitting in my truck)! i'm leaning towards using it as a garden bench, but haven't yet decided. this idea is definitely going on the list of potentials! great job!

    I just purchased a cabinet that is identical to this. I'm planning to redo it and have it as an island in my kitchen. Now I see how nice it can turn out. I love it.
